  • Manufacturing Of A Silicon Chip
    674 words
    Inside every modern computer or other data-processing wonder is a microprocessor bearing millions of transistors sculpted from silicon y chemicals and light. Silicon, the second most abundant element on Earth, is used extensively in transistors, integrated circuits, photoelectric devices, and other electronic devices. A pure crystal of silicon does not conduct electricity unless traces of other substances are diffused or doped onto it. Therefore silicon must be manufactured in a specific way in ...
  • Natural Erosion Of Waves And Crystal Growth
    1,704 words
    It's funny how things that you used to do as a kid can change the course of people's lives. Myself, when my parents told me and my brothers and sisters that we were going to the cabin meant a week of solid fun. My family has a cabin up on Camano Island, which is about 20 minutes north of Everett, right off of the I-5 interstate. My family would go up there during the summer with my cousins and grandma, and go swimming when the tide was in, build sandcastles when the tide was out, only to have th...
  • Area Of The Bermuda Triangle
    4,382 words
    BERMUDA: THE SATAN'S RING Introduction: A legendary triangle of Ocean lies between 3 countries upon the Atlantic ocean. The Cities are Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Fort Lauderdale. Ships, people and aeroplanes have been reported mysteriously disappearing off the face of the earth whilst travelling inside this triangle. It soon acquired the name "Devils Triangle" owing to peoples superstitions that the devil was at play on this stretch of ocean and gobbling up weary and lost travellers with great del...
  • Solids Liquids And Gases
    573 words
    Solids, liquids, and gases are the three main, or fundamental phases of matter. Each one has a different density and a different level of stability. What determines the stability of each phase is the bond between it's atoms. The tighter the bond between it's atoms the more stable that phase of matter is. Solids are the most stable form of matter, followed by liquids, and then gases. Solids have a definite shape and do not take the shape of their container. Liquids do not have any definite shape ...
  • Crystals With Three Axes
    445 words
    The Classification and Formation of Crystals Introduction Purpose My purpose of this experiment is to find out how crystals are formed and how they are classified. For a long time, I've been interested in crystals, so I've decided this experiment would be perfect for me! Crystallography The study of the growth, shape, and geometric characteristics of crystals is called crystallography. When the conditions are right, each chemical element and compound can crystallize in a definite and characteris...
  • Crystallization With A Few Of Protein
    1,013 words
    For biologists, x-ray crystallography has always been a tricky technology. Harder than getting a good beam was growing large crystals of biological molecules-a task that's been compared to building regular structures from wiggly bits of Jello. Today, synchrotron light from facilities such as Berkeley Lab's Advanced Light Source may make it possible to use protein crystals as small as 50 microns (50 millionths of a meter) in length. The crystals themselves may also become easier to grow, thanks t...
  • Crystal Of Diamond
    360 words
    The Physics of a Crystal Most simple chemical compounds consist of crystals. If you were to examine a lump of crystalline material very closely, you would be able to see tiny individual crystals. All crystals have a definite geometric shape, determined by the way the atoms are linked together. Mineralogists recognize 32 different classes of crystal, which are grouped into seven crystal systems. Crystal systems are described by their axis, which are imaginary lines that join the center of opposin...
  • Crystal Palace
    1,932 words
    The Crystal Palace: A Palace of Beauty and Wonder The Crystal Palace not only showcased the wonders of Britain and its colonies, but it also inspired future architecture and pop culture. The reason for its entire existence was the Great Exhibition of 1851. Prince Albert's desire to show Britain's economic superiority fueled the idea for the Great Exhibition. Webb shows just how strong Albert's pride in British superiority was when he stated that, "Scientific curiosity, a faith in progress, and t...
  • Crystal Lattice Structure
    308 words
    web. The atoms in a crystal are in a regular repeating pattern called the crystal lattice... A crystal lattice is defined by a repeated three-dimensional unit... The basic building block of these crystalline structures is known as the "unit cell" and this "unit cell" repeats itself over and over to form a lattice... When a pure metal starts to form from a cooling molten state, the atoms arrange themselves in an ordered geometrical pattern that is repeated over and over again producing a crystall...
  • Future Applications Of Liquid Crystal Display Technology
    1,730 words
    Jenny Wang Ms. Monroe English 21 Jan 2003 Liquid Crystal Displays Liquid crystal display technology has integrated itself into many facets of our daily lives. It has gradually become so commonplace that we as consumers barely even take notice. Going about our daily lives never thinking twice about how this technology came to be and what makes it possible. How many of us have digital watches? How many of us use cell phones, personal digital assistants, pagers, and compact disk players? Consumers ...

  • Natural Adamantane Structure
    2,638 words
    The unique nature of diamond is heavily dependent upon its composition, crystal structure, and mechanical, thermal, and electromagnetic properties. 1 Of those dependencies, composition exacts the most influence over the characteristics. Crystal structure is the repeating pattern of diamond's composition, and each of the properties are the result of molecular interaction which is determined by composition. Therefore, composition is paramount in the determination of the qualities of diamond. Befor...
